With nature as their classroom, campers ages 8-15 learn to swim, hike wooded trails, and learn about the environment while exploring in the outdoors. Campers return home with more confidence, new talents and new friends. As campers learn new skills, they also learn about themselves.
* For Summer 2022, participation is limited to youth, ages 8 – 15, who have previously participated in any Fresh Air Fund program. (Siblings of former campers are also eligible to apply.)
